The great thing about weddings is that they are an expression of who you are as a couple. And that means incorporating elements of your personalities into everything from invitations to the music. Weddings are held in places ranging from barns to high rise balconies, and a lot can be said about your wedding style and vision by those choices. We wanted to help you make sure your style and personality don’t set the wrong tone and avoid guests going too casual on the dress code.
“Save the date” postcards style
Your first points of contact with your guests are going to be your wedding save the dates and wedding website. If you are a fan of the rustic, boho look, simple and modern or even steampunk for that matter, try to use elevated elements to set the tone. For save the dates, use fonts that say elegance; printed envelopes, color and style all matter! Use the same style and font on your website to stay consistent.
Define the way you want your wedding to look like
For your wedding website, add inspirational pictures, details and specifically write the expected dress code in a nice way. Writing “no jeans allowed” may be what you want to say but use wording that describes the day, like semi-formal or formal. Add suggestions and links to amazing stores that carry the style you would like your guests to wear, it’s helpful and doesn’t offend anyone. Keep guests excited with social media posts about ideas you have for your wedding so there is a sense of style without giving away the details.
A bit of style, but a bit of a comfy as well!
At the end of the day, it’s your wedding and if a guest does arrive at your wedding in jeans and a t-shirt, be graceful and thank them for coming. You just married the love of your life and the food, music and decor are amazing then there is no need to worry about the one guest who didn’t get it completely right. Enjoy all your hard work and dance the night away. Need help with your theme, decor or how to start the planning process? Give us a call or email and let us worry about all the details.
